I LIKE TO MOVE IT! MOVE IT! : A Presentation
on Muscles The Muscular System has 650 muscles. There are three types of Muscles. Cardiac Muscle Smooth Muscle Skeletal Muscle Smooth Muscles contract like skeletal muscles but even slower. Smooth Muscles also use less energy than skeletal muscle. They make up the stomach wall and the digestive tract. Cardiac muscles are striped like skeletal muscles. Cardiac Muscles never tire out unlike others. Cardiac Muscles continually contract and relax.
I'M SWEATING!! AROUND 70% of your body heat is produced by muscles. They produce enough heat to boil 1 litre of water for 57 Minutes. Your Neck already has its own 30 Muscles. Your fingers have 37 muscles. There are 2 types of Main Muscles: Involuntary and Voluntary Muscles. Involuntary Muscles These muscles are muscles that work without your help, e.g the heart which pumps without you telling it to pump. FAST FACT Voluntary Muscles These are the types of muscles that you can actually control, e.g your legs and arms are controlled by you. these muscles won't do what they're supposed to do unless you tell them to. All skeletal Muscles are voluntary. The End Disease Strikes!!! As you know the main intention for this system is to provide movement, create balance and generate heat. When a disease hits this system it affects the whole body's ability to work. Here are some of the diseases: Muscular Dystrophy, abbreviated as MD, are a series of diseases that affects the muscles. 6 diseases include congenital, facioscapulohumeral, myotonic, oculopharyngeal, distal, and Emery-Dreifuss. At the moment Muscular Dystrophy canada are helping people in North America with MD. Other diseases include Dermatomyositis, Compartment Syndrome, Rhabdomyolysis, Fibrodysplasia Ossificans, Progressiva, Myopathy, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Dermatomyositis, Polymyositis, Rhabdomyolysis, Compartment syndrome.
Muscle Facts The biggest muscle in your body is the Gluteus Maximus (also know as your butt. The smallest muscle in your body is the stapedius, located in the middle ear is a mere 1.27 mm. Muscles make up about 40% of your body weight. A lot of people think that muscles push and pull, but in reality they only pull. Keepin' it healthy As humans age their muscles lose their strength and decrease in size and power. This makes you less flexible. But healthy proactive behaviors can be made to keep them strong now and as you grow older. 1 very important thing is to excercise, about 90 minutes per day. It helps control your body weight, strengthen the bones, builds muscles and improves the quality if life if your 10 years old or 90 years old. Exercise helps the body to use oxygen more efficiently too!!!
